What is bootstrap script in aws?

if you want to execute some commands during boot up(also launch), you can execute it easily by mentioning during step 3 of EC2 launch. Bootstrap scripts run only once - when the instance is instantiated for the 1st time.

click next
4. choose an instance type as t2.small, 2GB memory. click next

5. in step 3, go down, under advanced details.  Copy the script

6. Now continue like how you provision EC2 instance.
7. once you provision, you will be able to see Java, Maven and Jenkins installed in EC2 instance after launch.

Login to EC2 instance when you type 
java -version
mvn --version

Go to the browser and try to access Jenkins in the browser, Jenkins should be coming up.(make sure you open port 8080 in the firewall rules)

Java, Maven and Jenkins should be installed successfully.
